🎁 FREE BONUS! 4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence
A FEW WORDS
FROM MICHAEL EVANS
I’m Michael Evans, co-owner of Skillz of Patchogue.
As an instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because SKILLZ is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt:
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus, and respect.
In fact, martial arts training isn’t our goal at all. It is simply a tool that helps us engage the kids as we work directly on helping them with their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body, and character.
That’s because SKILLZ provides instant positive feedback (We call it “Teaching in 4D”). Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness, and self-respect.
And of course, it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching SKILLZ classes to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun child development classes.
DOES YOUR 7-9 YEAR OLD
STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They sometimes have a hard time concentrating when distractions are present.
They sometimes show excessive fear when they over-process something and struggle with decisions.
They don’t like when something is unfair and will be determined to point it out and be heard.
By understanding the stages of development of 7 to 9-year olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Core SKILLZ Program:
We take Martial Arts training to a whole new level! We use basic elements of a traditional Martial Arts curriculum to build skills that are appropriate for 7 to 9-year olds. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging. The best part is the Core SKILLZ program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life!
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
The solution we found is to provide 7 to 9-year-old kids with their own program that targets their unique needs and abilities based on their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them up for success.
Kids between 7 and 9 years of age typically have weak fine motor skills therefore proficient technique is not quite there yet. Also, they still tend to stumble when their body is in motion therefore advanced movement is still a little sloppy.
We expect them to initially struggle with great technique in their blocks, strikes, kicks, and stances. We also expect them to initially look sloppy when jumping, spinning, switching feet, etc.
The goal of our program is to get them to perform technical blocks, strikes, kicks, and stances while applying power. Also, our goal is to get them to apply speed to motion without looking sloppy.
Core SKILLZ kids are extremely bright, but they typically have a hard time concentrating during distractions.
We expect them to initially lose focus if there are other, more “interesting” things going on around them. We also expect them to forget simple commands mainly because they try to “over-think.”
The goal of our program is to get them to concentrate on the task at hand despite other distractions. Our goal is to also get them to retain simple information without trying to put excessive thought into it.
Kids at this stage of development are wonderfully stable and love challenges. However, they will typically show excessive fear when they over-process something.
We expect them to have emotional stability for the most part on normal days. We also expect them to initially show excessive fear when put on the spot.
The goal of our program is to help them persevere through challenges, especially when they initially feel like giving up. We will also help them face their fears.
Core SKILLZ ninjas love to interact with others, especially adults. However, they typically don’t like when something is unfair and will be determined to point it out and be heard.
We expect them to initially interrupt us when they think something is wrong. We also expect them to show great determination when trying to get their point across.
The goals for our program are to help them know how to address problems and challenges properly without interfering with the overall flow of the class.
My 6 year old son has been attending Ninja class at 4GK since August 2018. He loves it and I do too! He loves the skills and games and I love the discipline he is learning. I’ve spoken with a child-behavior doc about what he gets to do in class and the doc was *thrilled*. It’s clear that he believes in the philosophies Sifu and Miss Heidi teach about the importance of play and physical activity for children for all aspects of their development.
My two sons have been coming here since December 2016. They absolutely love it & have THRIVED since coming! The older one suffers from anxiety & general fear, he has since built up tremendous confidence & has learned to verbalize any issues he may be having. The younger one is a ball of energy that needed direction & a release, he has achieved focus & better listening skills. The staff is AMAZING! They are welcoming, accommodating & listen to any issues you have whether it be with them, the class or your children. I could go to any of them & speak with them about ANYTHING & feel very comfortable doing so. Si Fu teaches the class in a low-key, fun manner that has the children engaged AND having fun at the same time, it's not the typical militant style. We received a military discount since my husband is a former marine AND ... They run a monthly themed Parents Night Out that gives parents a break without their kids from 7:30-10:00! I am thrilled that we found them & highly suggest to anybody looking for a martial arts school to check them out!
My oldest daughter has been coming here for a year. We fell in love immediately after seeing how wonderful the staff is with working with children of all ages. My second daughter was dying to be in a class also. As soon as she turned 3 we gave it a try and she has blossomed. Seemingly shy I was curious to see how her first class type activity would be. She loved it. Just waiting for daughter number three to be old enough because she is only two, but already feels like she belongs. We absolutely love it.
Great team! My daughter loves the school. She has learned so much since she started a year ago. I am so happy I found this place. I am so grateful for Ms. Heidi, Sifu Mike and all the team. Their love and dedication is shown in every class. Good job!!
